That's what I'm saying.
Get him to understand that hes here to show he deserves to be moved up when we lose alfredsson next year, then he can have the minutes. Unless he doesn't pan out, in which case trade him.

It just makes me wonder what teams actually threw at him, and why he's waiting.

His demands lost him his roster spot and cap space to Alfredsson. Barring some other teams deciding they're really interested in our trash, neither one will be opening up. His Detroit days are over, at least for now.

I still do doubt that it will happen.
But I was just throwing it out there since he apparently hasn't been swept off his feet so far.

And though both are unlikely, this would be easier to pull off, and smarter then bringing back danny clearly.

Yep. 

 

I get the feeling his agent was like "Dames, baby, you are the KING of the Swiss league!  I can get you anything you want!  Lets ask for 5 years at $4mil per.  You are the Swiss league golden boy, its a shoe in!"

 

And then he hit the open market, and all the NHL teams just laughed at how ridiculous his asking price was...

Signings have quieted down across the board.  He'll find himself an NHL team willing to give him what he wants before the start of camp, it just won't be the Wings.

Exactly. Hopefully there still aren't people out there holding onto hope that he'll re-sign. It's 100% for sure not happening. There isn't even a slight chance. Even if we do pull off a trade to dump some salary (doesn't seem likely at this point) Kenny will use that to sign No Knees Washed Up Dan Cleary, not Brunner. He would be a Red Wing right now if he would've lowered his asking price a little, and accepted a bottom 6 role with the potential to EARN a top 6 role, not just be handed the spot free and clear.

That's still not a source.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

And with all the injuries and Babcocks musical line combos he would end up spending plenty of time in the top six throughout the season anyway.

I remember getting a funny feeling watching his locker room exit interview at the end of the season that he had already made up his mind to test the free-agent market. Anyone else see that little interview and get the same feeling?

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Lamiorello say it at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

 

Bueller?
